Jamie xx NOT DJing w/ Brenmar & secret guest Girl Unit
Jamie xx (of The xx) is DJing at Le Poisson Rouge tonight (8/1) with Brenmar. LPR’s site also lists a special guest for tonight’s show. That guest is Girl Unit, who, like Jamie, makes ambient dubstep beats in their shared hometown of London.
Tickets for tonight’s show are still on sale. UPDATE: Jamie xx has cancelled due to visa issues. It’s unclear if the event will still happen without him.. The event will still happen and it’s now free (still no Jamie though).
In related news, “Over the coming weeks, Jamie xx will collaborate with multimedia artist Quayola, whom he has long admired. Their work will culminate in an original and immersive audiovisual live music experience titled ‘Structures’, housed in a carefully chosen venue… an event not to be missed.” If you’re in the UK and want to try and attend, more info is at Rizlab.
Girl Unit is finishing up a short North American tour which also hit Osheaga in Montreal last weekend. Tonight’s LPR show is one of a few August dates for Brenmar who plays another NYC show on August 12 at Brooklyn Bowl with Dillon Francis. Tickets are on sale now. Jamie xx has a bunch of other appearances coming up too, though no more in the US. The xx are hopefully working on a new album.
All dates and some song streams below…
Jamie xx – “Far Nearer”
Jamie xx – “Beat For”
